It is very good to see a Iain Rice edition of MRJ and I love the kitten.

 

282 has just arrived in Australia and is my lunch time reading today.

 

Regards,

Took me a bit to realise there was a cat there at all! I'll continue to look forward to the surprise of a MRJ Turing up in the future!

They have a mind of their own. 

 

Here's the Works Forecat in occupation at Bleat Wharf.

Are the tracks energised?

Perhaps the cat enjoys those little frissons and tingles of electrical energy!

 

Just a thought...

Shame our feline friends can't read warning signs:

 

"  DANGER!

   EXTRA LOW TENSION!!

   TRACK ENERGISED AT 12000 mV.

   DO NOT TOUCH!!!"

 

Still, I'm sure this would add a new "buzz" to "points duty".

 

All that's missing is some catnip.

 

 

Huw.

Try licking the terminals of a PP3 battery*, its about the same as DC track voltage/current  .

You'll definitely get the tingle!

 

* Perhaps this should have a public safety warning?

In the absence of same, here is Max the giant kitten chewing a Ratio telegraph pole just south of Midford viaduct

Naughty kitty! I trust you sent him to Coventry.

 

 

 

Oh, er, hang on....

Max was a cat with refined tastes, including backing signals....

 

A bit later in his life he ate one half of a large fruit cake which approximated to what seemed like his own body weight. The results were cat-oestrophic, it was a good job the kitchen floor had quarry tiles, coz when I picked him up ex fruit cake went all over the place.

 

A singular animal indeed, as are many cats of course.

 

Oops sorry about that excess of alimentary information, still it makes a refreshing(?) change from WH Smith spottings.....

 

Arf arf

 

Magazine still not out.

This all depends on how long ago this was - after all, that photo doesn't look particularly recent - and this could have been an issue.

 

Although he seems to have been "trained", he could have been interested in a certain event on the site of the former Foleshill gasworks, in September 2014 (an event which the guys who run this site might not be too keen to talk about).

 

Otherwise, a trip to Coventry would probably have been a complete waste of time.

Remarkably, there was no damage what so ever. Not even squashed static grass. The WFC simply gracefully exited and that was that.

Ah yes, Percy Savage couldn't believe the number of times he belled that train through to Wellow from his imaginary signal box that night.....

 

It was the Bass wot dunnit.

 

No pictures of course, but the last train over the line was snapped by Ben Ashworth, who was by then living up a tree to keep out of the way of Max the giant cat.

 

Which rather leads us to the story of how Marigold Horace "borrowed" Evening Star for the last train and was never forgiven by Derby, Swindon, Bath or anywhere else for that matter....

 

And just what has this got to do with MRJ? Nothing of course, these events all took place many years ago - a full two years before said magazine appeared.

 

Still no mention of WH Smith, although based upon Life The Universe and Facebook I'm surprised we haven't seen more kitten activity on the thread.

 

I wonder whether And Dell's Dagworth, for example, has ever seen feline action...

 

Anyway, I didn't do it and it wasn't me, whatever it was.
